Nets going with their probable best starting lineup tonight in their preseason opener: Simmons, Irving, Durant, Harris and Claxton.
Can beat a lot of teams with that. Not sure could beat Milwaukee or Boston in seven games with it. But it’s Oct. 3. – 7:31 PM

Joe Harris starting after a Nov. ankle injury ended last season: “There’s more of an appreciation now when you realize it can be taken away from you from something out of your control…(Its) a bit of that childlike feeling, a lot of appreciation just to be able to play.” #Nets6:34 PM

PJ Tucker played some small-ball center for his last 3 teams, so we’re not having a Doc Rivers victory tour yet.
Still, it was nice to hear the Sixers will experiment with small ball lineups.
